Answer will follow in the pane below as per above parameters….
Yes, that would be basic contract law 101. You are entitled to the benefit of the bargain damages. This means that you are entitled to what you would have received in compensation if the contract had not been breached. This also includes any consequential damages or expense you suffered.
Does that seem right?
Well, if that is what the contract states, then both sides have to abide by it. The issue of right or wrong does not come into play here unless it is something criminal in the contract or the contract against public policy; neither of which appears to be the case here.
and do you think this case is worth pursuing with an attorney?
Most lawyers will not get involved in this. You will need to pursue it in small claims court.
How are we doing? Did you have any more questions? If not, can you please assign a feedback rating so we can close the question out? Thank you.
